Ultrasonic Sensor

Enable your assisted or automated parking needs!

The Ultrasonic Sensor is completing our Automated Driving and Parking product portfolio.

This sensor is dedicated to be used in low-speed maneuvering situations and it measures the time of flight to an object using the Echo-Localization principle.
It sends an ultrasound echo (wave) and receives a signal (wave reflection by an object) after a certain period. The time of flight is converted to a measured distance.
The ultrasonic signal processing software, designed by Continental, located in the ECU, interprets these measurements and determines the appropriate actions to take, from warning the driver of nearby objects up to automated parking.
The Continental Ultrasonic Sensor enable the Parking Slot Detection and Parking Distance Control functions using a parallel firing concept which provides ultra near range detection and resolution.
It is also ASIL B validated in order to enable safety functions.
